Renato Crisostomo Capili, age 59, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at his home in Hanford, CA after fighting Stage 4 Cancer. Renato leaves behind his father Romulo known as “Amang Romy” and seven siblings, Rhicks, Vicky, Myla, Chato, Sally, Roda, and Ron; and twelve nieces and nephews. He also leaves behind several uncles, aunts, cousins, in-laws and friends whom will all miss him and remember him as a person who preferred to be in the background.

Renato was the first born grandchild of Manuela and Felino Capili and he held a prominent, special title as “Kuya Rey” to all of his younger siblings and cousins.

Renato held several positions in the service industry but he is known for his nineteen years of service with the United States Postal Service as a Lead Automotive Technician. He was the go-to mechanic for the entire family and was always willing to lend a hand. Kuya Rey lived a simple, private life and a cup of coffee with pan de sal and cheese was enough to bring him happiness. He shouldered the load and worked tirelessly to provide for his family without any complaints or expecting anything in return. His way to relax was to go fishing or watch movies and car racing on TV. He is known for being quiet and reserved but surprisingly is so funny with his jokes and antics, much like his favorite comedian Mr. Bean.

Private services will be held by the family.
